The show was the most viewed title on the streamer in the first three months of this year, with a total of 76 millions accounts watching it. It went straight to #1 in over 20 territories and is the first French series to ever enter Netflix’s US Top 10 list.
Praise for the series:
‘The series also doesn't waste a single minute, packing each and every moment full of suspense. Put all of that together, and it's an early front-runner to steal a spot as one of the best shows of the year.’ - Slate
‘A captivating series… as [it] progresses, Lupin reveals to be much more than a story about cleverly thought-through heists conducted by a charismatic thief with powers of seduction.’ - Forbes
‘Stylish and sleek…the story that unfurls reveals itself to be more than just a caper, but an amiable lone-wolf revenge thriller that’s as nimble and light on its feet as its central character’ - Chicago Tribune
‘One of the great strengths of Netflix’s Lupin is how it entices the viewer down one path, to then strip it away and surprise with an entirely new outlook.’ - Ready Steady Cut
‘Lupin is an addictive, clever puzzle that combines elements from Luther, Sherlock Holmes, and Inside Man for an engrossing experience.’ - Robert Daniels from rogerebert.com
